    Aida is the opera that has it all. The story is exciting. The music is splendid and, from start to finish, memorably melodic. And the epic, cast-of-thousands sprawl of the drama is so vividly captured by Verdi's score that you can literally see its splendor simply by listening. This is what grand opera is all about. But the ultimate grandeur in Aida is the supreme genius of Verdi, experienced here in peak form.

    Written a year before his death, this collection of short plays by Miguel de Cervantes is a fine example of his genius. Oftentimes overlooked, these eight vignettes are funny and touching at the same time. Designed to be performed in between larger acts, they give a glimpse into a world far less glamorous than courtly life.
